Leave Behind A Blessing

Still pondering the message thought “Am I making God’s way attractive?”

from: Quiet Places of the Heart in Winter

On one occasion two friends spent a few days in our home while passing through en route to some engagements in the East, They invited me to go along. After several days on the road one of the men missed his hat. He was sure it had been left in our home. He asked me to write my wife to find it and kindly sent it on to him.

Her letter of reply was one I shall never forget. One sentence on particular made an enormous impact on me. “I have combed he house from top to bottom and can find no trace of the hat. The only thing those men left behind was a great blessing.”

Is this the way people feel about me? Do I leave a trail of sadness or of gladness behind? . .

Do I leave behind forgiveness—or bitterness?
Do I leave behind contentment—or conflict?
Do I leave behind flowers of joy—or frustration?
Do I leave behind love—or rancor?
~ Phillip Keller

Think of those who have left a blessing (not those whose leaving was a blessing) and let us follow their examples.

Psalms 90:17
And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.

Trust God for your day, ….Today
